Brunner & Z tearing up the NLA

Just came accross this story, hopefully we will get to see it someday.

The connection with Brunner could benefit the Red Wings once the NHL's work stoppage ends.

A number of NHL teams showed interest in the 26-year-old Brunner over the summer after he was named Swiss league MVP last season. Highly skilled and lightning fast -- "He ends up getting a lot of breakaways," said Shedden -- he signed with the Red Wings on July 1 and stayed at Zetterberg's house when he visited Detroit.

"In talking to Zetterberg, he likes him and thinks he should be able to play (in the NHL)," said Shedden.
